Another Life

I believe the power of touch

Comes not just from a gentle caress

Or shielding and protective hug.

But from the gentle word spoken for a hurting heart,

A kind smile shared tenderly with a troubled soul,

A soft and deep sigh of contentment shared with love,

A pause in life to listen to another’s troubles or pains,

A quiet commitment of action to someone’s need,

A direct look into another’s eye with a nod,

A whispered breath exhaling the power of an emotion just shared.

These powers have the greatest capacity

To touch.

  4. Very beautifully expressed chatter, without touch the human (and even animals) could not survive. ❤

    I agree. The human touch is needed. Make us know. We are not alone. Wonderful words and thoughts shared my friend.

  9. “A whispered breath exhaling the power of an emotion just shared.”–Wow. You don’t miss a thing! And how well you captured that. I wouldn’t have thought of that.
